Bush 'plans Iran Air Strike by August'

The George W Bush administration plans to launch an air strike against Iran within the next two months, an informed source tells Asia Times Online, echoing other reports that have surfaced in the media in the United States recently.

Two key US senators briefed on the attack planned to go public with their opposition to the move, according to the source, but their projected New York Times op-ed piece has yet to appear.

The source, a retired US career diplomat and former assistant secretary of state still active in the foreign affairs community, speaking anonymously, said last week that that the US plans an air strike against the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC).

There is no reason for the USA to bomb Iran other than to accomplish the goals of the neoconservatives which is to weaken the oil rich Nations of the Middle East.

Thus far they have knocked off Iraq, Afghanistan (an oil pipeline is set to run across that country) and are putting pressure on Syria in connection with targeting Iran.

Such madness can end if action is taken against the architects of these conflicts and arrests made for the crimes already committed.
